My daughter is about to enter 9th grade in high school. If her teachers were permitted to have access to a weapon I would home school her. I don't believe that this is something any civilized people would allow. Does anyone really believe that a person out for revenge would even think twice just because a teacher may have a weapon? Does that stop anyone? Haven't we learned that even the threat of the death penalty does not inhibit a killer? How about just having a trained officer at every school? We have one at the local middle school even in our sleepy town. This makes sense, as he is trained to handle any type of crisis. Teachers have enough to do, and are under enough pressure, without having to worry about anything as preposterous as this.
